Take One Action Film Festival presents a screening of Grit, a gripping portrait of a teenager finding her political voice, at CCA Glasgow on September 21st!
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
When Dian was six, an earthquake, set off by natural gas drilling, sent a tsunami of mud hurtling towards her village. Ten years later, people in her community still seek reparation from the powerful mining company responsible for the damage. This portrait of a teenager finding her political voice offers a rousing tribute to youth activism and to the role of education in empowering young women.
